Trip Planning

School is out. Summer is here, and for many people, it is time to hit the road.

Whether you are vacationing in Nevada or traveling a little farther away, the Library can help you to plan your trip so it is more enjoyable for everyone. We have travel guides for destinations all over the United States and the rest of the world. We also have guides to help you find RV camps, tent camps, Bed and Breakfasts, hostels and other lodging accommodations.

Perhaps you want to explore ghost towns? We can help you with that. Check out Ghost Towns of the American West. Or maybe you want to find accommodations along your route that will allow you to have Spot or Puff stay with you. We can help you with that, too. Look into On the Road With Your Pet or Traveling with Your Pet: The AAA Pet Book.

If you are traveling with the kids, you might be interested in The Penny Whistle Traveling with Kids Book : Whether by Boat, Train, Car, or Plane—How to Take the Best Trip Ever with Kids of All Ages. You might also help the kids find books with information about your destination so they will have an idea of what to expect. The kids will also enjoy helping you plan what to do and see.

You don’t want to miss anything along the way, including the little hidden gems out there, so look up America’s Strangest Museums: A Traveler’s Guide to the Most Unusual and Eccentric Collections. You really wouldn’t want to drive by the Pez Museum or the Cockroach Hall of Fame without stopping, would you?

Maybe this is the year to stay at home and do a little arm-chair traveling? If so, you might want to “think cool” by reading One Man’s Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey or From Everest to the South Pole.

Personally, I plan to spend some time getting to know our new home and have already checked out Out from Las Vegas : Fabulous Trips Just Miles from the Strip.
